Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
October 7, 1915

OBITUARY ~ ALLIE JOHNSTON STEWART

Mrs. Allie Johnston Stewart, the daughter of Josiah and Sarah A. Johnston, was born May 27, 1853, in Crawfordsville, Washington Co., Iowa. and died at her late home in Clearfield. Iowa, October 2d, 1915, aged 62 years, 4 months, and 5 days.

The major portion of her life was spent in Iowa; the first sixteen years at Crawfordsville, the next seven at Kingsville, Missouri, and most of he remainder in or near Clearfield. From '96 to '99 was spent at Starlville. Mississippi.

She was married November 21st, 1877, to J. Findley Stewart who today mourns the loss of a faithful, loving life partner, who was a true helpmeet for almost thirty-eight years. Beside her husband she is survived by two sisters, Mrs. John D. Goble and Mrs. L. S. Reynard of our town; two brothers, William F. Johnston of Oswego, Kansas, and George I. Johnston of Loveland, Colorado; and a foster son, Clyde Stewart of Ottumwa, Iowa. These with the grand-children, nieces,nephews and other relatives, and a host of friends, mourn the loss of one who was to each of them, a true friend.

Mrs. Stewart united with the church when she was sixteen years of age; and those knowing her thru the years bear testimony to the consistency of her life to her profession and the beauty of her Christian character. Quiet and retiring in disposition, her religion took on none of the spectacular forms, yet its sincerity was akin to her love for God's house, God's word, God's ordinances, and God's commandments. Does not that look well along side the divine exhortation and promise, "Be thou faithful until death, and I will give thee a crown of life?"

Mrs. Stewart was never a rugged woman, but was ambitious and industrious in spite of this handicap. For some two or three years she suffered from a serious heart affection, which was the occasion of her death.

As one remarked, "To those prepared to go, how ideal her taking away, retiring to restful sleep, and without a struggle, passing out and awaking in glory." Friends, God saying to us, too, "Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not; I will come."

Funeral services were conducted from the home by her pastor, Rev. T. R. Aiken, of the United Presbyterian church; interment in Clearfield Cemetery.
